Dear EAPD colleagues and friends,
EAPD is witnessing with astonishment that hostilities between Israel and Hamas are escalating, costing lives of many civilians, including children. Children are innocent victims of this terrible situation. Many are injured, sometimes leaving them disabled, or even killed. Terror and horror in childhood may adversely affect the life trajectory of children far more than that of adults.
EAPD condemns the brutality of this war that violates the values of democracy, freedom and human rights. No single human being should experience this horror. No child should live and grow up with fear in the heart. The EAPD Board calls for an immediate cessation of all acts of aggression and asks colleagues all over the world to support this urgent request.
We cannot stand aside and just watch what is happening. Therefore, EAPD invites all its members to help saving the life of children by financially supporting humanitarian aid organizations working in the affected region.
Let’s make a difference for the children, they are the future!
We want the war to stop immediately and peace to prevail so all children and their parents can live safely and healthy.
